The goals of managing osteoporosis are to decrease pain, prevent fractures and minimize further bone loss. There are several ways to prevent and treat osteoporosis, such as maintaining a healthy body weight, stop smoking, exercise more and retaining calcium and Vitamin D. Living with osteoporosis includes rehabilitation to return to bone health and daily living.
Treatment plans for patients will be determined by their care team based on age, medical history, stage of osteoporosis and personal preferences.
